Kristine K. (GoldenGryphon) from EAST BERNARD, TX Reviewed on 8/29/2009...
Having only had a limited exposure to South Park when they started on Showtime, then went more mainstream, this was a fantastic chance for us (Darling Adorable and me) to delight in the irreverent humor that makes South Park so funny. In much the same way that Monty Python strikes a chord in those of us who can handle broad, base and 'wacked out' humor, so South Park continues the highly improbable, nay, impossible story of a group of fourth graders and their assorted attached adults in South Park, Colorado.
This series is, indeed, not for children due to the high level of cartoon violence, 'earthy' language, irreverent depictions of authority figures, and excessive flatulence and bathroom humor.
Yes, we liked it. Watched two or three episodes a night until they were done, then found ourselves repeating key phrases and laughing hysterically. Really.

Best show ever, not so good DVD

"South Park is the funniest show on television. I'm glad the seasons are being released on DVD, but WB should have made it better, mostly because of the lack of commentary. But I'd like to point one thing out: South Park is owned by Commedy Central, and therefore Trey Parker and Matt Stone have no control over murchandising. CC asked for WB to make the DVDs, and they didn't do the best job. Matt and Trey ony make the show (and do a damn good job) and if they're asked to do a commentary, they'll do it. The episode intros were taken from the video sets and put on the DVD, and I find them very funny. They include Matt and Trey being creul to old people and feeding lots of bacon to a pig. (Disc 3 doesn't have any intros.) Another thing WB screwed up was the sound. It's clear, but on some parts of the DVD it gets quiet and turning up the sound on your TV doesnt help. All 18 episodes are in order, where they're supposed to be (unlike season 1) and i think South Park fans should own this.P.S. I read a review for season 1 from an angered mother saying she showed it to her little kids thinking it was intended for children. If she was smart enough, she would notice that it is rated mature, meaning you SHOULDN'T show it to 5 and 8 year olds or people that are easily offended. But DON'T go blaming media for all your problems. Thanks for reading my first Amazon review."
Atleast it's not a Best of...

"South Park...over 100 episodes and they're still going to make more new episodes in October. If you're reading this review you've probably bought Season 1 on DVD and are thinking about getting Season 2. This DVD has 18 classic episodes and contains some of my personal favorites including Chicken Lover(You will respect my authoritah!), Chef's Chocolate Salty Balls, Prehistoric Iceman, and the episode revealing who Cratman's father is. Special Features include subtitles, the documentary"Goin' Down to South Park", the music video for Chef's Chocolate Salty Balls", and the original Unaired Pilot. The Unaired Pilot is the original first episode but 28 minutes long. That original episode was made out of constucion paper by Eric Stough, Trey Parker, and Matt Stone in a room the size of a closet and took three months to make. If you're a fan of the show this is a must have.
5 stars out of 5."
Another funny season!

"The second season opens with Matt and Trey explaining why they ran "Terrance and Phillip in Not without my Anus" on April Fools day rather then the conclusion to the episode about who is Cartman's father.
The second disk seemed to have some editing problems. The sound for Matt and Trey's opening was low and yet the shows had a normal sound level. Be careful or you will get blasted.
Overall I liked all episodes.
Terrance and Phillip in not without my Anus: Scot the Canadian Prosecutor tries to frame Terrance for murder in order to eliminate the duo. He fails and later gets a call from Saddam who offers to help get rid of them. Terrance and Phillip will head to Iraq to rescue Terrance's illegitimate daughter (Celine Dion is the mother) and Saddam will move to Canada. Saddam quickly takes over Canada and its up to Terrance and Phillip to save Canada.
Carman's Mom is still a dirty slut: Matt and Trey open this episode. They are helping the elderly in a rest home. Mephesto is shot before he can reveal the father of Cartman. They rush him to the Hospital and people freak out about the killer. America's most wanted appears and offers to help. The boys and Chef are snowbound in the hospital and offer to help out. The people at the America's Most Wanted Studios are snowbound as well and have to take extreme measures to stay alive! In the end we learn the identity of Cartman's father.
Chickenlover: Matt and Trey open this one as well. We get a Cops type episode involving Barbrady. Somebody is having sex with chickens and we soon learn Barbrady can't read. He has to leave the force and South Park falls into anarchy. The mayor even comments that he actually kept the peace in town. The boys offer to help out and Cartman takes over patrolling the streets teaching people to "respect my auhoratay!"
Ike's Wee Wee: Matt and Trey open this one as well. Mr. Mackey gives a substance abuse talk to class. He uses Marijuana as an example and it disappears. He gets fired for being an idiot. Soon his world falls apart and starts drinking and taking drugs. Kyle invites the boys over to Ike's brisk. To his horror he quickly learns what that means and decides he has to save Ike's "fireman" After saving him, Kyle learns a secret about Ike.
Conjoined fetus lady: Matt and Trey open this one as well. The boys have PE with Chef. The game of the day? Dodge ball. The boys explain it to Pip and he turns out to be a natural. During the game Kyle gets hurt and has to see the nurse. The rumor is the fact that kids never return. Kyle learns she has a disease called "conjoined twin dyslexia" which means she has a dead fetus attached to her head. The town decides to have an awareness week for her. While this goes on the boys go on to be national champions of dodge ball and head off by bus to China for the world games.
The Mexican staring frog of southern Sri Lanka: Matt and Trey open this one as well. The boys have to write a paper about Viet Nam. They go talk to Jimbo and Ned who tell them tails of Merry-go-rounds, log rides and single handedly destroying the Viet Cong Army. Mr. Garrison sends the class to detention as a result. The boys then decide to make Ned and Jimbo look like idiots by sending them footage of the Mexican staring frog. A side story involves the falling ratings of Jesus and Pals. Jimbo and Ned's hunting show is killing the show.
City on the edge of forever: Matt and Trey open with a cooking show involving bacon. This was a funny episode involving flashbacks with twists. It starts when the bus gets into an accident. Mrs. Crabtree goes to get help and leaves the children on the bus which is hanging on the edge of a cliff. I liked the Star Trek reference. Mrs. Crabtree finds love and her dream; stand up comedy. While the kids are missing, the parents hold "we are the world" type concert to try and get the kids to come back from having run away.
Summer Sucks: Matt and Trey open again. School closes for the summer and Mr. Hat goes missing. Mr. Garrison flips out. The 4th of July celebration gets a setback as fireworks are outlawed. Ned and Jimbo head to Mexico to get fireworks but are caught since Jimbo can't lie. To save the 4th, the mayor decides to celebrate by lighting the biggest snake ever made. Cartman takes swimming lessons and learns about the 1st graders do in the pool!
Chef's Salty Chocolate Balls: Matt and Trey open again and this time the sound is ok. Robert Redford decides to move the Sundance Film Festival to South Park! Chef sets up a booth to sell fudge cookies! "Life getting you down?, fudge it" The resulting health food eating crowds put a great strain on the sewer system which makes everybody's favorite talking poo sick. Kyle tries to appeal to the crowds to save his friends life.
Chickenpox: Matt and Trey open again and sound is ok. Shelly catches Chickenpox and the parents decide to intientially get their children infected since you have a harder time if you catch Chickenpox when you are older. The boys take revenge by having a streetwalker named "Old Freda" help them give their parents Herpes. Kenny's dad and Kyle's dad were once friends when they were kids. Kyle's mom gets them take an ill-fated fishing trip.
Roger Ebert should lay off fatty foods: Matt and Trey open again. Sound is ok. In a tribute to the old Star Trek episode "Dagger of the mind," the boys go to the planetarium for a field trip and get programmed to love the planetarium. Cartman enters and wins a contest to be the Cheesy Poof jingle singer.
Clubhouses: Matt and Trey open again. Sound is ok. Bebe starts making her move on Kyle. Stan and Kyle have a race to build a clubhouse so they can play truth or dare. Stan first has to build it and then he has to figure out how to play truth or dare. During this time, Stan's parents split. Stan's mom hooks up with Roy and Stan's dad gets an earring and a fast car. Maybe the magic of clubhouses will come through. There is a funny bit involving the old Cosby show.
Cow Days: A couple wins a game show. Their prize? A trip to South Park for the celebration of Cow Days. The boys try and win a game by throwing a ball through Jennifer Love-Hewlett's mouth. The game is rigged so the boys need more money. They get Cartman to ride a bull. In the middle of training, he gets hurt and thinks he is a Vietnamese prostitute. During this time the cows discover a monument of a cow that kind of looks like Buda with a clock in his stomach. They decide to form a cult. In the end, the boys declare shenanigans on the carnival people.
Chef Aid: Chef learns that a record company stole a song called "stinky bridges" which he wrote 20 years ago. He asks for credit and gets sued by the record company. Kyle gets his dad to defend him and the record company gets Johnny Cochrane. Things go down hill when the Chewbacca defense is used. The boys decide to try and help him by setting up chef aid. While this goes on somebody is attacking Mr. Twig.
SpookyFish: This episode involves scary vision! The boys run into evil Cartman from another dimension. Stan's Aunt Flow appears and gives Stan a fish that might be killing people. Stan's mother thinks Stan is killing people and starts hiding bodies and locks Barbrady in the basement. The boys decide they have to get rid of the goldfish. Evil Stan and Kyle appear to claim their Cartman.
Merry Christmas Charlie Manson: The boys head off to see Cartman's grandmother in Nebraska. As the sign says "You are now entering Nebraska; Sorry" They arrive and enter a room full of Cartman's. During, their stay Cartman's Uncle Howard escapes from Prison with his friend Charles Mansion.
Gnomes: The boys get an assignment from Mr. Garrison. He is accused of not teaching the kids anything as such they must write something. He sets up 2 groups and the boys get tweak. They meet tweaks family and learn that the Harbucks Corporation is going to put the family coffee shop out of business. After getting drinking coffee for the first time, tweak tells them a story about underpants gnomes that steal underpants. They wait up and find out that they wasted time instead of writing the paper. Tweaks father saves the day writing a paper about Corporations destroying small businesses. The paper ends up starting a cause against corporate take overs.
Prehistoric Ice man: The boys discover a man frozen in ice. Dr. Mephesto helps them and discovers he has been frozen since 1996. The boys fight over who owns Gorak. The government appears and wants the ice man as well. They race to get Gorak to Des Moines where everything is 3 years behind!
Special Features: Chef "Chocolate Salty Balls" Music Video: Worth a watch!
"Goin' Down to South Park" Documentary: A look into the internal workings of making South Park. I wished I had their office! Worth a watch as well!"

"Season 2 is my personal favorite season of South Park. Descripctions:
* The INSANEST and TWISTED episodes are Spooky Vision and Flashbacks!!!!
* The FUNNIEST and SENSELESS episodes are Chikenlover and Gnomes!!!!
* The COOLEST episodes are Chef Aid and Clubhouses (my personal favorite episode).
There are another funny stufs like Wendy and Stan watching gay "indi" films, MR. Garrison diving in poo, MR. Mackey gets "High", the boys spend the night with Charles Manson and Cartman dancing the german dance.
Season 1 and 2 are the best and classic seasons, the others were great but not THAT special and classic as the first two seasons. Here is the BEST of each season: * Season 1- Cartman's Anal Probe, Big Gay Al, Pink Eye and Cartman's Mom is a Slut. * Season 2- Chikenlover, Chef Aid, Spooky Vision and Gnomes. * Season 3- Starvin Marvin in Space, World Wide Concert and Chinpoko Mon. * Season 4- This is one of the VERY BEST seasons of South Park. * Season 5- Scott Tenorman, Towelie, Cripple Fight and Osama Bin Laden. * Season 6- This is one of the VERY BEST seasons of South Park. * Season 7- Is GREAT but not THAT cool except for Cancelled and Cristian Rock Hard. * Season 8- The best episodes until now are Fun with Weapons and Passion of the Jew but is still GOOD.
